CROWN POINT — Authorities say they’ve confirmed that a human foot found in April in a pond in northwestern Indiana was that of a missing Indianapolis-area woman.
Police responded in Crown Point after a fisherman reported snagging what appeared to be a human foot. Officers determined the remains were human and a distinct tattoo led authorities to believe the remains belonged to 30-year-old Najah Ferrell of Avon, who has been missing since mid-March.
The Avon Police Department said Wednesday that the identification was confirmed by DNA analysis and comparison.
Family members have said that Ferrell left for work early March 15 and never made it. Ferrell’s vehicle was found March 26 abandoned in Indianapolis and some of her belongings were located along an interstate.
The investigation into Ferrell’s disappearance is ongoing.
